Superintendent's Message

Welcome to Dubai American Academy!

Thank you for visiting our website. Dubai American Academy (DAA) is a vibrant international community, deeply rooted in a culture of kindness. We are proud of our long heritage and dedication to the academic success of all students in a compassionate and inspirational learning environment. Targeting the highest international standards for our students, DAA offers an enriched American curriculum and the International Baccalaureate Diploma infused with a focus on innovation, including cutting-edge robotics, coding and technology.

DAA students are compassionate, independent leaders, who act with integrity. With our move to state-of the-art facilities in 2017, we aim to inspire innovative thinkers who integrate technology across the disciplines, are dedicated to a growth mindset and to adopting the academic and emotional dispositions required for deep and meaningful learning experiences.

We take our students on a journey through a world-class educational experience, empowering them to become the next generation of leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs. At the core of our future-fluent curriculum is creative design, cutting-edge robotics and digital fluencies encouraging students to apply technology-based solutions to real-world problems. Students are challenged to identify, inspire and imagine new and innovative approaches. As they envision and engineer these new approaches they work together cooperatively to evaluate and execute new solutions. They ask questions, analyze and apply information and data, and then listen, interpret and communicate information using multi-media tools and approaches. Students are encouraged to discover and dream about the world and its issues all the while developing digital competencies and literacy as they navigate the new technologies arising daily.

Beyond outstanding, DAA is an amazing place you need to see to appreciate to its fullest. So come take a tour, and see all that we have to offer!
